Amy Lamb is a photographer living in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a Ph.D. in biology and a passion for the scientific beauty of the natural world. “The beauty of nature, in all its abundant and diverse manifestations, surrounds us and, yet, easily can be overlooked. Because this beauty is fleeting and sometimes fragile, it motivates us to want to preserve it. I create close-up images of flowers and fruit to illuminate their splendor, hold time at bay, and create a dialogue between the viewer and the natural world”.
